Our 2022 winner, Logistec Stevedoring, presented an entry that outlined its commitment to safety, as well as its investments into new equipment and facility improvements.
Logistec showcased the handling of 75 m-long wind turbine blades and massive units weighing up to 961 tonnes as part of its well-rounded entry. The judging panel said that the company’s strong submission met all of the criteria, demonstrated the great service it provides to clients, all while showcasing some of the impressive heavy lift projects it has undertaken over the past 12 months.
Our judges highly commended the Port of Everett for this category, after the gateway put forward an entry that detailed how it supports USD30 billion of exports annually and plays a key role in Washington State’s breakbulk and project cargo market. Some USD150 million has been spent in the past decade to modernise seaport facilities, and those investments helped alleviate some of the West Coast’s cargo backlog in the past 12 months.
Making it onto the shortlist this year was the port of Grenaa, which outlined how it has been involved in the pre-assembly of one of the world’s first floating offshore foundations for wind turbines; T. Parker Host, whose terminal operations throughout the US East and Gulf coasts are capable of handling breakbulk, bulk and project cargoes; and Zuidnatie, which handled more than 2.2 million tonnes of breakbulk and more than 500,000 teu across its three terminals last year.
